" ..........in humans...... commonly characterized by a strong urge to clean and organize one's home and is one reason why couples who are expecting a baby often reorganize, arrange, and clean the house and surroundings. " .....Nesting Instinct- courtesy wikipedia
Anushka already wants to buy baby clothes and toys and fill it up. I just asked her to place the toys we had sorted for the baby from her old stuff.
She is very particular that small toys are not part of this since I had mentioned to her that babies have a tendency to put everything into their mouths. . .
Oh yes! here are the latest Anushisms, centering around the baby-
She is aware that the baby is smiling, sleeping, eating, swimming and even "troubling" her amma in water in her stomach
" When doc aunty cuts your stomach all the water will come out na?"
Had to reassure her that
1. the baby would not need the water since it would also come out
2. doc aunty will ensure the water is cleaned/ mopped up
Boy or Girl
" Once baby comes out of your stomach, it will say its name and then we will know if it is a boy or a girl!!"
"If you have a boy, then the baby and I will be like Charlie and Lola" ( ceebebies)
" If you have a girl. then she can have all my paavadai chattais which have become small"
" Amma I want a baby in my stomach. When will it happen?"
Offered her a simplistic reply- after her marriage!! LOL, though it may not be prerequisite as we know
